Auditions for Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School:

Show dates December 4th through the 13th

Junie B. Jones is back! Based on the bestselling books, the saga of the wisecracking first-grader continues in Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School, a goofy and heartwarming follow-up to Junie B. Jones, The Musical.

A self-appointed expert on all things first grade, Junie B. is determined to write the ultimate guide – Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School. As she deals with writer’s block and constantly getting into trouble, Junie B. quickly realizes that she still has a lot to learn.

Featuring new, upbeat songs from Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich (Junie B. Jones, The Musical, Dear Edwina), Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School is a hilarious, whole-hearted show about owning up to your mistakes and how nobody is ever done learning. With 14 roles that can be doubled with as few as 5 actors, this is a flexible TYA show that is fun for all audiences
